Bobbie Jo McCarley, Administrator

My name is Bobbie Jo McCarley, I was born and spent most of my life in Texas. I am a single mom of 4 girls and 1 boy and love spending time with them. I enjoy being creative, making cakes and even singing karaoke for my residents. I love to live life with a smile.

I have been in healthcare most of my adult life, starting out as a CNA caring for elderly people in home health setting at the age of 18. I become the Healthcare coordinator at an assisted living facility in College Station Texas and found my life long career. It was there that I decided I wanted to spend my days creating an environment where residents could enjoy everyday life. I worked in Texas as an Executive Director for four years until a wonderful opportunity became available here in Greeley, Colorado. I love the geriatric population and love coming to work every day because it does not seem like work to me.
